Do you want to get back into education after having some time away?

Truro and Penwith College Access to Higher Education has teamed up with the ESF project, Access to Higher Level Skills to offer adult learners(19+) the chance to find out more about the options available if they are lacking the qualifications needed to study a degree, HND/HNC or equivalent qualification in a higher education institution. 

The information day is a free event therefore booking is essential to reserve your place. Buffet lunch and refreshments are included. Click the link here to book today

The session will inform you about the Access courses that are available at Truro and Penwith College, as well as taking away something practical on the day through the following activities:

  • Introductory talk
  • Finance and funding information
  • Subject specialist practical activities
  • Student talks
  • Advice and support

What is an Access Course?

Access to Higher Education Courses provide learners with a step-up to University level by giving them the necessary grounding and qualifications for progression to University Courses. This route equipts students with excellent study skills in specific subject areas, giving them the confidence to succeed.

How much do they cost?

If you are over 19 and require an Advanced Learner Loan to cover the course fees (ranging from £3,022 - £3,928), the Access loan could be 'written off' on completion of a degree level course. If you are aged 19-23 at the start of the course, and do not hold a full level 3 qualification, you would be fully funded for your Access course.

What subjects can be studied?

Science - Medical Careers - Sports Science - Computing and IT - Nursing and Humans Sciences - Psychology and Social Work - Humanities -Teaching and Law - Art and design - Creative media and photography

See our full range of Access Courses on the website: www.truro-penwith.ac.uk/access
These Higher Level Skills sessions are fully funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) as part of the ESF Widening Participation through Skills Project.

Please register your place and advise us which sessions you are interested in.

Really enjoyed it, very informative. Speaking to other students was very helpful!
